Meet the owner

In the Fish Creek Provincial Park you can find one of the most beautiful restaurants and event destinations in the Calgary area. Built in 1896 by William Roper Hull, the Bow Valley Ranche has seen many changes throughout the generations.

Calgary Stampede founder Patrick Burns purchased the property in 1902 but it was in 1995 when Mitzie and Larry Wasyliw created the Fish Creek Restoration Society with the purpose of restoring and utilizing the beautiful property. A fine dining restaurant since 1999, the Bow Valley Ranche Restaurant is set to become a destination for parties as well as just a great night of dining.

Operations Manager Donal Hoey has been with the Bow Valley Ranche since 2003. In 2014, when Great Events Group assumed ownership of the property, they asked Donal to continue his work and he was happy to oblige. “I love this house,” Donal says. “I am glad to have been asked to stay on.”

Combining his experience at Bow Valley Ranche with a service industry resume that goes back to Europe in the 1970s, Donal is a key figure in the day-to-day experience of this iconic Calgary spot.

The restaurant is not just a pretty piece of architecture – its menu features creative preparations of mostly local, sustainable ingredients. For example, the baby romaine Caesar salad is a unique Asian-inspired appetizer that features spicy elk salami and wild boar belly.
